    Change of plans. Heading to the airport now. No more gambling sessions to report. Weather back home is supposed to be pretty nasty starting in a few hours and for the next 72 hours, so as much as I would like to stay and use up my many hundreds in comps on a couple nice meals, I am heading home to beat this storm. I spent two nights in a terrace studio fountain view and spent a whopping $100 of my $300 upfront food and beverage credit. Most importantly, I kept those winnings!

    Thanks for following along!

    Just read your tr. It's not Halloween, with those pumpkins it must be vegasmeisterween! Very nice job to say the least! Simply awesome and glad you are on your way home. Way to lock in the win.
    So I think you made 140k ish at that table. Were your palms sweating? You must have had a bunch of winning hands in a row to win 140k in less than 30 minutes (I think it was 30 minutes). Theo was actually decent considering the game. Thanks to VM I also have SY. She is great!
    Thank you for taking us along. Well done and again, great come back. Congrats!

    Thanks Packer. I made 100k'ish at that table in about 20 minutes. Went from 40k down to 60k up. Palms weren't really sweating but heart was racing and hands were shaking a little.

    Take the win. The free food is not free if you dump back the winnings.

    Great comeback. I hope to do the same. I need a monster comeback.

    Safe travels home.

    BJ is really the only game I play. When the dealer's on a streak, the player can reduce their bet, switch the number of hands they play, and/or leave the table. When the player is on a streak, the dealer has no such luxuries (except the dealer change/cooler effect haha), and the player can ride that streak.

    If a player is flat-betting, in my experience they will rarely win. (That's why some casinos even let known card counters continue to play BJ but only if they flat bet).

    If you can maximize the amounts bet on the winning hands and minimize the losses on the losing hands, you can still come out a big winner, even if the dealer wins more hands. You just need to string together some wins and have the intestinal fortitude (balls) to press at the right times. And, of course, you need Lady Luck to assist with your timing.

    One more note regarding comps... I do feel like I received good comp value. Here's why... with CES in town, many hotels were sold out and others had very high rates. When I called to inquire about the availability of my email offer for these CES dates, the lowest room rates at Cosmo were in the $450/night range. A week later, the hotel was sold out. I was able to get these dates with no issues (and was surprised).

    These same dates, every lowest tier MGM, CET, and independent property was at a minimum of $250/night.

    I know it was crazy what the rack rate is for this week and weekend.

    Hope you beat the bad weather home.
